Visual Arts at Springfield Middle
Led by Meredith Matthews
Students must be enrolled at Springfield Middle School to register for this course. This course introduces students to the elements of art and principles of design, which are the building blocks of creating a work of art. At the same time, students are introduced to various media and production skills and are encouraged to think critically and creatively. Students will work individually and collaboratively.
In-person courses will follow the DCPS schedule for holidays and school closures.
This program is supported by the Kids Hope Alliance.
